My self-summary
Hi there, I'm Timo and I'm a radical urban historian. How 'bout you?
What I’m doing with my life
Doing a PhD at the University of Nottingham, going for a degree in American History. All about Puerto Rican community activism on the Lower East Side. I get to travel a lot, keep flexible times, and write and read to my heart's content.

Besides that I love to be active. I hike and swim and play squash. I love to feel and hear my heartbeat, it's a spiritual thing for me. I consider swimming meditation, haven't tried yoga yet.
I’m really good at
being pragmatic and compromising. While I have quite radical views I generally care more about coming to a compromise than forcing my views on others. Same goes for religion, I'm not religious, though I'm spiritual, but I do go to church sometimes. Because I'm weird.
The first things people usually notice about me
I get by unnoticed except when I decide to dye my hair blue or pink. Right now it's pink. Actually, it's more faded platinum now. What next? Ashen?

I also love graphic novels (Blankets, Fun Home, Blacksad, Watchmen, The Contract with God trilogy, Persepolis, NGE, I Kill Giants, Daytripper)

Food: I love to cook and therefore I love to eat home-cooked meals. I love greek food, Mediterranean stuff and everything with lots of spices, herbs and greens in it. I often mix Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines.
The six things I could never do without
If I had to choose 6 things to take to a deserted island:
-a comfy bathrobe
-a journal with a pen to write stuff
-a dog to keep me company
-another dog to keep my dog company =)
-a cat to keep the dogs in check
-a blanket to keep the bunch of us warm at night
I spend a lot of time thinking about
traveling. Inter-European travel can be insanely cheap so I take advantage of this whenever possible. I love to explore city cultures as much as I love to hike and bike in the open wilderness (where such a thing still exists). Looking for travel buddies!
On a typical Friday night I am
probably at home watching a movie? Going to some event or playing boardgames?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm incredibly happy with my life but I don't show it.
You should message me if
you want to be my travel buddy, friend, or more. I don't bite.
